Wings to Fly Mural

Wings to Fly

2014

The Wings to Fly mural was created as a love note for Downtown Tauranga. It's located on The Strand opposite Starbucks. The mural aims to build culture by making the city more vibrant and encouraging interaction between the public and art.

The project explores the relationship between traditional art and the digital world of social media. This was supported through a photo contest campaign which motivated people to upload photos of themselves onto both Instagram and Facebook. The mural is a popular spot for locals and visitors to the region of all ages. Check out the #lovedowntowntauranga 

The mural was a collaboration between myself and artist Millie Newitt and took a total of 24 hours to complete.
